western jet liners oh over detroit several years ago. so this has been going on for some time. al-qaeda in north africa tried to take over mali and would have succeeded had it not been for french intervention. >> paul: is mali really a threat to us? >> you could have made the same argument as afghanistan, a remote middle country in the middle of asia but it's a threat that it provides a secure base that al-qaeda can plan and plot. that is the issue. now, the biggest threat increasingly is syria where we have literally thousands of fighters affiliated with a front and other al-qaeda ideologically linked groups that are gaining strength. they are gaining expertise. they are gaining and creating sanctuaries. >> paul: and presumably hard to penetrate? >> they are importing jihadis from europe and going to perpetrate things. >> paul: we were told the syria isn't our fight, it's irrelevant to our security. it's over there, it's the middle east. we need to withdraw from the middle east and pivoted to asia because we have been stirring the hornets nest there? >> we are told what happens i
for detroit. 20 10 air cargo threat as well as other plots that were effectively mitigated. some more international in scope and origin like the christmas they plot was involved a nigerian citizen who purchased his ticket in ghama,. flew from legos to amsterdam and attended to ignite a bomb en route to america. that attempted attack, we learned that relevant information possessed by u.s. customs and border protection needed to be available overseas at the last point of departure for the united states. we fixed that. we learned that our adversaries were moving to nonmetallic devices. we adapted our screening technology and tactics to counter that. learned that a single vulnerability in any part of the aviation system can make everyone connected to it vulnerable. since we don't control security at foreign airports, we have to work even more closely with international partners to raise the overall security of the system. we did that. shortly after the christmas day plot, i launched a worldwide initiative to make these needed changes in close collaboration with our strongest allies. i am

[ male announcer ] you'll never see weekday lunch the same again! it's red lobster's rlunch. seven selections made for your lunch break, like simp tacos and grilled shrimp salad with soup. all jt $7.99. come inoday for rlunch and sea food differently. >>. >> shep: before the break we told you that the president had cancelled the summit meeting about the russian leader over recent tensions with moscow. one factor in that move in the recent decision to provide temporary asylum to snowden. so, are you surprised? >> snowden is a big part of this. remember there are a lot of other things that are going wrong in the relationship between united states and russia. you showed a photo earlier from the sitdown a few months ago. it's kind of a reflection of the bad relationship they have right now. where is it stemming from? look no further than syria, where united states and russia are two sides of war. they are concerned that russians are funding assad. the u.s. wa
of michigan and, of course, everybody's aware of the economic pain felt by the city of detroit, so finishing a swim there was also very symbolic. what we really wanted to show, number one, we're selling these bricks to help fund building projects, but there was also a message of hope we wanted to deliver, you know, that we don't have to sink with the weight of our burleds, you know? and if one man can pull a ton of bricks 22 miles, then what are we able to accomplish if we all pull together? i believe we will have the strength to pull ourselves out of this, and that was really the message that we delivered. jenna: it's such a powerful message, and it struck me as i was reading a little bit about you that most of the stories we do about detroit and about michigan are, as you mentioned, you know, they're negative because of what's going on right now with the economy. and you had an interesting interaction with a woman who traveled to see you at the end of this swim, jim. tell our viewers a little bit about that. >> this was the most special moment of the swim for me, you know? in addition to m
western jetliners over detroit. several years ago. so this has been going on for some time. al qaeda and north africa tried to take over earlier this year and would have succeed seeded had it not been for french intervention. >> you could have made the same argument 15 years ago -- is afghanistan a threat to us? distant highly -- remote little country in the middle of asia. but it is a threat to the extent it provides a secure base from which al qaeda can plan and plot. that's the issue. now the biggest threat increasingly i would say is not yemen but syria where we have thousands of fighters affiliated and other al qaeda linked al qaeda groups. and that are gaining strength. they are gaining expertise and gaining fighting experience. >> they are create sanctuaries inside of syria which will be presumably very hard for us to penetrate. >> right. not only that but they are importing jihadis from europe that will go home at one point back to hamburg or -- madrid. then they are going to create perpetrate you jihadi -- >> we were told that this syria isn't our fight. it is irrelevant to
, walking out of their jobs forcing the closure of at least one mcdonald's in detroit, protests took place in 1 14 many cities -- in many cities demanding pays to $15 an hour. my next guest said that conflict in syria creates a unfriendly environment for the markets despite some up lifting economic news today, welcome steven whiting. syria, a new worry that many investors are not app days pay theeing, how does it affect the market. >> it added to a range of concern, tapering issue by fed goes on and on. the general troubel that has been in emerging markets, trouble to get savings flows they had in past decade, a lot of turmoil in the currency markets. lori: why is that important? many are hitting multiyear lows right now? >> this is a big trend change, in last decade dollar fell in 8 out of 10 years through 2011, and domestic investors tried to move their money overseas are international investors tried to leave dollar-based assets but the dollar got cheap, a lot of things like pick up in crude oil supplies from united states, making effect of syria and other disruptions in the middle eas
who came to detroit in 2009. this is more -- is more general. i think if anything's changed it's that in the aftermath of the attack on our facility in benghazi and the deaths there of four americans and the continuing ha la ba lu from congress about embassy safety, people just want to err on the side of taking extra precautions. they don't have the same kind of specificity here they've had in other threats. what they have is significant personalities being involved in the threat stream and i think that's why they take it seriously. >> we are living in a post-benghazi world and benghazi drives so much of this. >> exactly. so richard haas, talk a little bit about -- what's the president's for closing -- precedence for closing 22 embassies and this al qaeda resurgence. >> let me start with the latter. people are focusing on the u.s. reaction which i think is appropriate. the bigger story this is the new normal. this is now a middle east where you no longer have countries that are essentially controlled by their governments. it's been the case in pakistan for some time, which is w
's public comments. >> that's right. it's simplified by the vice president is detroit was alive and bin laden was dead. they went on to say it was on the heels. this seems to call it into questions. it's not just groups that hit us in benghazi that this administration hasn't really focused on but al qaeda was the one they were focused on. also the progressive line that all we have to do is pull out of iraq, dwachb stan, roll over, play nice doggy and these people won't be as violent against us isn't true. basically we've shifted from offense to defense and this is what happens. >> quickly, what's the significance for you that this includes afghanistan? >> i think it shows central asia continues to be a real hot spot and even though they want the afghan war to be over, we still have to have the ability to act in central asia as long as asia and militants are there. >> thank you so much for your insight. good luck with the book. >> thanks, shannon. >>> peace negotiations continue. hopes are high but the path will not be easy. the defense minister joining us live with his thoughts next. >>

the underwear bomber in detroit, we had major hassan inspired by awlaki who's now going on trial here for the ft. hood shootings. we had the attempted new york city subway bombing. times square bombing. so a lot of this stuff has continued and can still affect our homeland. i think chertoff on balance can make a pretty reasonable argument in defense of what he is saying. >> john stanton, one cannot ignore the sort of politics of this decision. we played that sound from the president's speech at the national defense university as sort of a reminder i think of his objectives here which is to unwind the 9/11 -- or not unwind but get us past the 9/11 mindset. but this event sort of takes us -- i don't know how ever many steps backward in terms of the sense of security around a sense that perhaps we do not need a counterterrorism complex, a national security complex that's as far-reaching as we have had. can roth, the director of human rights watch, wrote the war against al qaeda is over. this is an op-ed in the "washington post." he says these's fill yachts are significant actors in yemen and northe

on to larence. caller: i have a question. i am a city employee. the city of detroit is under an emergency manager. right now the emergency manager is in federal court to file a ankruptcy for detroit. what he wants to do is to stop paying into our pension ystem. our pension system is protected by the michigan onstitution. what do you see happening to our pension if the federal bankruptcy allows them to stop paying into our pension? guest: that is a difficult legal question. there are a lot of people who have worked their entire lives believing their pension would be here for them. the issue is that federal law is supreme to state law. if federal law is properly invoked, then the michigan constitution does not have anything to say about it. it is not clear whether detroit properly file that petition. the michigan constitution says a municipality cannot do anything that would diminish the tensions of the employees. filing a bankruptcy petition can be interpreted as something that would diminish their ensions. so the argument that's very plausible is the petition itself is no good. the federa
control. they want the deficit under control, stop spending. jon: very quickly, look at detroit. detroit declared bankruptcy in part because it has so many mandates to fund pensions and so forth that it cannot afford to pay -- >> right. jon: same kind of thing the federal government is facing. >> although the federal government has a magical printing press, jon, but you can't do that without consequence. so we do have to get this government and spending under control. jon: monica crowley, thank you. >> you bet, thanks. alisyn: well, a controversial program shaping up in california. suspects swapping their dna for a taste of freedom. coming up, we take a closer look at this. >>> and wooly mammoths roamed the earth tens of thousands of years ago, but could these prehistoric beasts be revived? one scientist is considering cloning the ice age giants. alisyn: right now orange county, california, playing let's make a deal with suspects: hand me other a sample of your dna, and you could go free in certain cases. will carr joins us live from our los angeles bureau with more. >> reporter: here's
for me. the last time i was on the field, it wasn't pretty. it was against detroit in the playoffs and against baltimore. and i was horrific. so i have an opportunity now to come in and hit in the middle of the lineup, hopefully get some big hits and help this team enter the playoffs. >> referring to your comments friday night, he thought they were counterproductive and he thought alex probably isn't that happy with those comments. >> who? >> michael weiner was saying that perhaps you were not happy looking back with those comments, wondering how you feel about them a few days later. >> i said what i said. that's friday night. today is another day and i'm focused on what my job is responsibilities to the fan base of new york. i do want to thank all the fans and some of the media people and my dominican people and all the hispanics all over the world. i mean, the support i've gotten has been incredible. it's been the toughest fight of my life. this is probably just phase two, just starting. it's not going to get easier. it's probably going to get harder. but i am humbled and i'm tha
into detroit. they've attacked our embassy there before. there's a very active franchise of al qaeda operating there in yemen. it's one to be taken seriously. we've had successes against them. the yemenis have been wonderful partners in this fight, but at the same time we have to take these kind of steps to the ensure we keep the initiative and we're not reacting to the enemy after the fact. reacting ahead of time and setting the conditions can throw the enemy on their back foot. >> you know, i want to play a little bit of what representative peter king, he's the chairman of the house homeland security subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence. i interviewed him about an hour and a half or so ago, and listen to this little clip, general. then we'll discuss. >> i have been getting briefed fairly regularly over the last seven, eight years at least, and also pretty heavily before then, and this is the most specific i have seen. and, again, i don't think i'm giving anything away when you look at the reaction to have 21 embassies being closed shows how seriously our government is taking it,
angeles, detroit, pittsburgh, eight cities in all, you will see something that you have likely never seen before. no programming. no sound. just a slate with a time warner logo and a scathing open letter, at least earlier there was a letter that you could see, that read in part, cbs has made outrageous demands for the programming that it delivers free over the air and online, requiring us to remove their stations from your lineup while we continue to negotiate for fair and reasonable terms. cbs called it a first. in case you're wondering, this whole fight is over something called retransmission fees. these are the fees that cable companies pay to broadcasters like cbs in order to get that content that they so desire and the content that viewers love. remember, too, it's not just cbs that's dark right now. cbs-owned premium networks like showtime and the movie channel are dark as well. today we are on the streets of new york, tv's number one market, to see how viewers are responding. take a look. >> i only heard about it because i went to watch "wet therapy" this morning on showtime and th
on an american jet over detroit. and dispatch bombs on a cargo plane bound for the u.s. three to four yemeni fighters were involved in the benghazi attack last year. the obama administration expanded the drone program in yemen. in 2011 drones killed and war -- anwar al awlaki. there are far fewer strikes this year compared to 2012. >> the number of attacks is falling because they have in fact gotten to some of the top tier leadership, is what the administration would say. i think what we're seeing this week calls that into question. it's hard to assess. >> right now there are more than 100 troops on the ground in yemen, split between the marines helping to protect the embassy and special operation forces down south training the yemeni forces on counterterrorism. >> thanks, chris. so how serious is the threat. joining suss michael hayden, now a principal at a global security firm. the drone strikes in yemen, do you think they're directly related to this latest threat that the u.s. detected coming from al zawahiri to a top al qaeda in yemen? >> it's hard to tell. we've had a campaign in yemen
the world's largest airline. >>> big-time bust for a police commander in detroit because he accidentally left the bra sizes of female officers out. the information was on a spread sheet for bullet-proof vest owners and got forwarded to others in the department. >> it is an embarrassing situation. i'm going to be addressing the situation formally with him over the next few weeks. >> will he face discipline for that? >> once we complete our investigation there will be corrective action. >>gretchen: the female officers will be filing grievances. screaming girls can't keep these dads from catching up on sleep. check out those photos of dads dozing off at the one direction concert. >>brian: the direction they want to head is home. they have had it. let the kids go. >>gretchen: one direction is home. they've got to keep a watchful eye on those girls. you never know. >>brian: what good are they doing if they're not even looking at the concert with their kids? go home. meet them on the outside. meet them in the parking lot. >>gretchen: is there a voice somewhere that's nearby? there he is. he's
've got to say, you cannot rob the people of detroit of the pension. they worked hard for these pensions. and let me tell you something, if we stand by what they take the detroit pension they will be taking our pensions. so don't think it will happen to us. if they can set a precedent, they will do it to us again. let me just tell you this. inequality is a scourge on our society. and yes, we're talking about low-wage workers making $7.25 an hour. we've got to do something about it. but there's the other side of that, the other side of that is that some people are doing pretty good. so between 1979-2007, a period, although less than 20 years, real income rose by 240% for those at the top 1%. it's a shameful thing. it is a moral issue. and we've got to fight back at this. let me tell you, our economy is capable of producing enough good paying jobs for everyone. [applause] our economy could do it. this economy can do it. but we can't do it while we're getting trade deals that are shipping our jobs overseas, that just leaned on us a few months ago for the south korea the other said it will c
rock. michigan police say they arrested a 43-year-old man who tried to break in north of detroit wednesday. these are surveillance pictures of the suspect taken from kid rock's house. the suspect clearly not going to let it stop minimum from getting inside. he used a white van. the rocker posted a description on the website and is offering a $5,000 reward. >>> new information overnight. there was no winner in the $300 million jackpot. check your tickets. $400 million for wednesday's drawing. still well below the record $590 million jackpot won by a florida woman in may. the odds are matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million. >> the only time i play is when it's up around like $300 mill n million. >> a good shot of winning. >> it's worse. >> what a rip off. >>> all right. rick, he's right there. what's happening? >> only when it gets up to $400 million. i'm glad nobody won the $300 million, now we can play and win. >> i'm glad nobody won, too. >> 40 degrees in minnesota. it is cold there. a big cool pocket of air, moving across the great lakes to the northeast. a very nice
of detroit and chicago that these cities in deep financial trouble may with looking -- may be looking to push some retirees into the health care exchanges instead of having to pay for health care benefits until they're the age of 65 or so, michael. if that happens and, again, it's just an idea, but if health care becomes entrenched in that way because of decisions made by politicians at a local level, how does that influence the political debate? >> i think one of the ways is that if cities, cities with big payrolls like shaq -- like chicago dump their employees on the health care exchanges, this program is going to end up costing more than has been projected, because those assumptions were baked into the bill. one of the things you have to realize about this bill is that even its backers admit that it was not the ideal piece of legislation they wanted. that's because after the victory of scott brown, the republican in the special senate election in january 2010, democrats no longer had the 60 votes they needed to beat back a pily buster in the -- filibuster in the senate. and their only path
almost 300 americans died over the city of detroit, only then was it political well to see we need to use 21st century technology which we have against the terrorists. so if you look at it right now in a world where they only have to be right 1% of the time, we have to right 100% of time on defense, we should use one of our few advantages which is technology. the vast majority of explosive detection systems in place today aren't capable of detecting either this type of clothing soaked in liquid explosives nor are they capable of detecting even a bottom in the body, the surgically implanted ones or even something as basic as the underwear bomber. why is that? most of these magnetometers, they detect metal. that is not the explosive itself. it's usually the only metal involved is the detonator. so if you're able to design explosives with no metal detector, metal detonator, you effectively invade that system. so we're living in the stone ages on most of the technology we're using. we need to use our wide advantage which is to bring forward this modern advanced imaging technology to allow us
americans died over the city of detroit. only then was that a political will to say we now need to use 21st century technology which we have against the terrorists. so if you look at it right now in a world where they only have to be right 1% of the time we have to be right 100% of the time on defense we should use one of our few at images which is technology and the vast majority of the explosive detection systems in place today aren't capable of detecting either this type of clothing soaked in liquid explosives nor are they capable of detecting even say the surgically implanted bombs or something as basic as the underwear bomber. most are designed to do -- magnetometers detect metal. that is not the explosive itself. usually the only medal medal involved as the detonator so if you are able to designed explosives with no metal detector, you effectively have made that system. we are living in the stone age's on most of the magnetometer technology we are using. our one advantage which is bring for this modern advanced imaging technology to allow us to level the playing field in the last thin
and comments on this issue and the threat of al qaeda right now. our democratl on line from detroit, michigan. good morning, you were on with christopher hill. caller: good morning. withieve the whole thing the embassies and everything was a manufactured crisis because of the snowden release. once again, it is just like the terror alert. one native yellow, one day it is green, get people scared. governmente basically gets permission to take your rights away. i do not trust anything the more the government says. it is just too convenient after the snowden release that is when this came out. host: mr. hill, your take on ais, his belief that this was way to scare the american public. guest: i do not think that is the case. having said that, we need to see this against the backdrop of rising tensions in the world of rising sectarianism in the arab world. i'm trying to relate it to broader issues. i would not relate this to the case of snowden in moscow or the toinistration's efforts deflect the attention it. when you close an embassy, it is a very syria's -- a very serious thing. they are our eye

, the editorial editor of the detroit news and he's my guest. good morning to you. >> good morning. thanking for having me. >> gretchen: one of the things we should point out is even though it was enacted under president reagan, one of the ways it has blossomed under president obama is that we're now talking about cell phones. when president reagan started this, we were talking did land lines. correct? >> correct. actually under president bush, the program was expanded in 2008 to include cell phones. but it has really expanded along with all the other welfare programs during the obama years. it's gone from, as you said, 800 million to $2.1 billion and 41% of that money is estimated to go to phones and services for people who aren't really qualified. it's riddled with fraud and waste and you still can't kill it. >> gretchen: 41%. i mean, come on. americans hear that and they think how can you stand by and allow this to continue? you decided to go out and do your own research, so you sent your intern out to do what and what did she accomplish? >> actually i didn't send her out. she's working n

[applause] >> you know, i would kill you don't blame it all on obama because they were uncontrolled bureaucracies under george bush. i expense them, and he did, too. he goes back to the thing we kind of started out with, is the federal government is out of control. but it's been predicted by all the historians that our republic will fail. so the question is how do we cheat history? how do we go back? how do we really base -- we embrace the things that made america great. as i said earlier i think we have to get in charge. i've been working for nine years to try to make a big difference. i have made a small difference, not a bi big difference. b
